A prisoner in Romania sues God for the troubles in his life. He says he paid God (cash or valuables) as well as prayers in exchange for promises of a better life. Apparently he did not get the life he was "promised"...


RIA Novosti: Romanian prisoner sues God

A prisoner in a Romanian jail is suing God, Greek state television reported from Bucharest Tuesday.

"God received different material valuables from me, as well as prayers in exchange for promises of a better life. In reality, this did not happen - I found myself in the devil's hands," the plaintiff said.

The convict is serving 20 years in the west Romanian city of Timisoara. He apparently blames God for the troubles in his life and wants God brought to account for failing to fulfill the commitments He undertook and for taking bribes.

The plaintiff said that when he had been baptized in childhood, he concluded a contract with God that had legal effect - God was supposed to protect him from evil.

In line with the law, the lawsuit was submitted to court.

Always blame someone else, it´s never your fault
Yeah, right... Blame God for your misery. How did he end up in that prison cell after all? 20 years! I seriously doubt that God told him to go invade any countries or something like that. I wonder if he has any witnesses. Can he prove it? Maybe his prison cell will get hit by lightning very soon?

Before you even begin to contemplate suing 'God' you've got to be off your trolley. Maybe this guy should be in the mental hospital not jail.

If this case goes to court, then the law is not only an ass but an incompetent dunce. I hate all this "must be submitted to court due to the rules", would be so hard to say "Look mate, you can't sue God, don't be such an idiot and stop wasting the courts time".

Edited for censor circumvention.

I wager that a God won't show up at court in his own defense...

Not only can one not sue God (according to the laws of the cosmos)--neither can God be bribed or paid to provide happiness and whatever.

I guess he never heard the Beatles sing 'Money can't buy me love.'



Who could be the judge in such a case? Who judges a Judge?

Wouldn't you hate to be the deputy that was told to serve God a subpoena?

And if he doesn't show up, is the judge going to issue a warrant for his arrest?

Can you imagine having to tell God "turn to your left and face the placard toward the camera" for his mug-shot?

How about all the news coverage that trial would get! - I can see the helicopters chasing down God's entourage of black-limo-hummers on the freeway now.

I wonder what would have happened if he had sued Satan...


The laws of the cosmos?

Can I get a copy? I would love to see that...

That pesky God!!!

How will he take the oath on the stand though?

"I swear by Almighty Me that the evidence I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me Me".


Also, it would be a right downer if He refuses to take the oath on the Bible, wouldn't it?

As for the initial post.....


"Your honor we call to the stand . . . er . . .uhm . . . God?"


Okay? . . . Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you You?

[hypothetical] God takes the stand:

"Yes, your honor, I tried to tell Darwin that whole evolution thing was nothing but monkey business!"

haha, chickenbollocks!
I guess, If the dude worshiped satan, he could come up with enough excuses of making a fool of himselves, talking about worshipping, and praying and using incentives as money. Pfff. prayers. If he had more money, he might get a free out of jail card, though.


Religious fools!

I was reading a book once (uncle John's bathroom readers) while in 7th grade science and was reading the crazy lawsuits, this one guy was sueing God because for some completly idiotic reason and if he had won he wanted his former employer to be thrown in to hell and to have either his pet pigeon or his dead mother resurrected, crazy read but very interesting and funny

But this is Romania, they might have a different Oath there...

"I swear by Almighty Satan that the evidence I shall give shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me Satan".





Sorry Romania. I honestly do not know how this works in your courts. No offense. heh
